Three important recently-implemented measures to mitigate traffic

2017-01-20 — In an effort to encourage drivers to use public transport when travelling downtown Montréal and to facilitate their travels, Mobility Montréal finances a great deal of measures to reduce traffic, three of which have been implemented since the end of November 2016.

Inaugurated on November 18, 2016, the new Mansfield terminal located between Saint-Antoine, Saint-Jacques and Mansfield streets and the Canadien National (CN) train tracks—increases the number of buses that can get downtown. The new terminal helps improving transport fluidity and safety for public transport clients from various South Shore municipalities.

Since November 21, the Société de transport de Montréal has been offering a shuttle bus service connecting the Agence métropolitaine de transport’s new park-and-ride lot (300 spaces) at the junction of Autoroutes 40 and 15 (corner of Sainte-Croix and Dion) to the du Collège metro station on the Orange line.

A new train station was added to the Candiac line, between the Montréal Ouest and LaSalle stations. It opened on January 16, 2017. Located at 115 Saint-Joseph boulevard in Lachine, the Canal station (in French only) offers more than 150 parking spaces and gets users downtown in about 20 minutes.
